The Atlanta Braves will head out to the Bay to start a three-game set with the San Francisco Giants this Friday from Oracle Park on the MLB Network.

Braves Preview & Projected Starter

Atlanta moved to 82-44 after taking two of three from New York. The Braves silenced the Mets in game three, and they’ll look to close their strong month of August on this ten-game road trip. The Atlanta offense is scoring 3.83 runs per game, while batting .270, with a .339 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 3.67 ERA, with a 1.26 WHIP. 

Spencer Strider (14-4, 3.57 ERA, 155 Ks) will get the ball for Atlanta. The second-year pitcher put together another scoreless outing last week against San Fran, tossing ten strikeouts over seven innings of work to earn win number fourteen. Strider has responded to an uncharacteristic loss in Pittsburgh with a pair of strong starts, and he’ll look to replicate his effort against the Giants here in the Bay Friday night. 

Braves Player Trends & Props

Ronald Acuna Jr. has totaled multiple bases in four of the last five games, and he’s leading Atlanta in batting (.335) and hits (168), with 28 HR and 74 RBI. 

Matt Olson had multiple hits in the game three win over NYM, and he leads the NL in home runs (43) and RBI (108).

Austin Riley has collected a hit in eight of the last ten games, and he’s posting splits of .277/29/77.

Marcell Ozuna homered in all three games against the Mets, and he’s tallied 28 home runs and 67 runs batted in for the season.


Giants Preview & Projected Starter

San Francisco comes in at 66-61 after dropping two of three to Philadelphia. The Giants avoided the sweep in Philly with an extra-inning win in game three, and they’ll look to avoid a third straight series loss this weekend. The San Francisco offense is scoring 4.81 runs per game, while batting .250, with a .326 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 3.89 ERA, with a 1.29 WHIP. 

Logan Webb (9-9, 3.36 ERA, 162 Ks) will get the call for San Francisco. The fifth-year righty didn’t fare that well in Atlanta last week, allowing nine hits and four runs thru six innings pitched. Webb’s last five home outings have resulted in quality starts, and he’ll look to come through with a different effort against Atlanta here. 

Giants Player Trends & Props

Wilmer Flores homered in the game three win over Philly,  and he leads SFG in batting (.304) and home runs (18), with 46 RBI. 

J.D Davis went hit less in Philly, so he may be due this weekend, and he still leads the team in hits (96), with fifteen home runs and 57 RBI. 

Mike Conforto has multiple hits in five of the last ten games, and he’s posting splits of .251/15/55. 


Corey’s Free Pick

Atlanta got back to business in game three against New York, and I think that momentum carries into the Bay. Spencer Strider will get another crack at this manageable Giants lineup, and with him going to a much more pitcher friendly ballpark in Oracle, we should see another solid start from him. SFG has dropped five of their last seven games, and I like trusting the advantages Atlanta comes in with here. Back the Braves for game one this Friday.
